And the earth shall have it all

Oil on canvas

90 x 121cm

The idea for this painting was inspired by the Italian poet Cesare Pavese.

The earth does not see a uniform, or hear a soldier’s dying words.

It does not feel a mother’s grief or sense a family’s despair.

“Victory”, “Defeat” and “Country”, are muffled sounds scattered by the winds.

In the end, the earth will welcome us all.
